    SSH as a cross-cutting issue*

    Policy Research and Innovation

    Integration of SSH in Horizon 2020Supported through the 'Excellent Science' part of H2020 (ERC, Marie Skodowska-Curie & Infrastructures)Integrated in Leadership in Enabling and Industrial Technologies (LEIT) where relevantIntegrated in each of the 7 Societal ChallengesSSH play a major role in the Societal Challenge 6: "Europe in a changing world inclusive, innovative and reflective societies"

    Policy Research and Innovation

    The role of SSH in excellent science

    The European Research Council (ERC) is already a major funding source for curiosity driven frontier research. About 17 % of the ERC-budget will be allocated to SSH Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MCA) give opportunities for greater mobility and network building. SSH share of 11-12 % Several major research infrastructures in the SSH are supported by FP7/H2020 : CESSDA, DARIAH, CLARIN, ESS, SHARE

    Policy Research and Innovation

    Embedded SSH: All Societal Challenges, LEIT and activities under Excellent Science are generally open to SSH contributions in all their lines of activity and thus favour 'embedding SSH' as genuine interdisciplinarityDedicated to SSH: In some Societal Challenges and parts of LEIT it is delineated a specific SSH line of activity called 'the socio-economic dimension of'

    The role of SSH in the Societal ChallengesThe Societal Challenges will bring together different technologies, sectors, scientific disciplines, social sciences and humanities, and innovation actors to find new solutions.

    Policy Research and Innovation

    Integrating SSH - FeaturesEconomic feasibility of the implementation, especially for the close-to-the market R&I actionsSocial acceptability of the new technology/ product/ service (cf. ICT, nanotechnologies, nuclear)Human behaviours (cf. obesity in Health, savings in Energy, alternative mobility in Transport)Values (cf. cultural differences, ethnic issues, religious backgrounds)Governance, policy and institutional aspectsForward-looking dimension (cf. modelling, scenarios)*

    Policy Research and Innovation

    Integrating SSH ChallengesIn technology-driven topics there is a tendency to refer to SSH aspects in only a marginal way ( SSH as add-on not as integral or driving part);The aim to make the call texts more general and less prescriptive might be in conflict with the need to draft texts with the necessary level of detail and reference to relevant SSH research;Cultural and practical barriers/academic incentive system: mono-disciplinarity of training, curricula, journals, faculty structures;

Scope: "Projects should develop a systematic and operational framework to map and characterize the variety of public goods provided by agricultural and forestry activities throughout Europe", "work should consider ways in which to valorise and establish effective support measures (policies, incentives) for the delivery of public goods in response to societal expectations"ISB 210Scope: Methods for generation of innovation-driven reserach, mapping and development of innovation borkering activities, methods and networksISB 311Challenge: Balanced development of rural areas, facilitate social innovation. Scope: Analysis of social innovation in agriculture and rural development, methods for evaluation of social innovation, analyze the role of policy instruments and incentivesISB 410ISB 511Scope: The overall economic, social and environmental sustainability issues as well as its Life Cycle Assessment should also be critical elements.ISB 610ISB 710Scope: identification of procurement needs, legal workISB 811Challenge: Socio-economic implications of the bioeconomy. Ensuring a responsible and participative governance. Scope: Engaging society, participative governance of the bioeconomy, briding reserach and innovation efforts for a sustainable bioeconomy.

    Provisional screening of SSH relevant topics in the WP 2014-15112 of 437 topics in Societal Challenges[*] can be flagged as SSH-relevant, representing a share of 26 % of all topics and an estimated share of the budget of 3.7% (277 Mio. euro) SSH parts of the Societal Challenge 6: around 120 Mio. euroTotal available budget for SSH under the first two years of Horizon 2020 (incl. ERC, MCA, RI) can be estimated to 1.100 Mio. Euro[*][except SC6, "Science with and for Society", "Spreading excellence and widening participation" and LEIT]
